Our Story with Refugees

The year is 2015.

The refugee crisis is growing.

Families around the world are still forced to flee their homes every minute of the day.

Thousands of families, through no fault of their own, are leaving behind their homes, livelihoods, often their loved ones – because of war and violence.

But with loss, comes resilience and an incredible strength that the world is witnessing, empowering and supporting.

In the beginning, we at Voices #With Refugees had one simple purpose: to bring people together in support of the refugee cause and with them, tell the stories of the thousands of families we serve.

And thousands of people joined us. They helped to raise the voices of refugees for the world to hear and stood in solidarity with families to face the different challenges and crises that occurred throughout the years.

Now the year is 2021.

Our family has grown, and we are an outstanding community of more than 50,000 supporters within the MENA region.

Partners, CEOs, celebrities, influencers, students, UNHCR staff, and beautiful citizens of the world are all part of this great community working together to recreate a world in which refugees are protected, dignified, and helped.

And the result…hundreds of thousands of people have received support to make it through the worst of times.

Today – for every moment that a family loses their home to war or violence, there’s a kind person who believes in change, and who is taking action to save a life.


UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is a global organization dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities and stateless people.

UNHCR works to ensure that everybody has the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge, having fled violence, persecution, war or disaster at home.
